Great Expectations

Is it a crime to desire a job with less accountability? I'm beginning to think I have no ambition at all. I have no desire to learn anything more about this internet shit. I don't want to become the resident usability accessibility impossibility expert or whatever crap it was I was just asked to become, I don't know because I tuned out after the first half an hour. Some parts of the job I could do with my eyes closed, other parts baffle and terrify me.

The one constant is the feeling that this is not for me. But what is for me? I don't bloody know! I feel like I have the capacity to be good at something, but I have no idea what. I failed miserably as a journalist, and now failing at web chick. I'm not worried about being a disappointment to my parents anymore, as I was after I failed to set the news world on fire. Now I just feel like a thumping huge disappointment to myself.

It's so pathetic to have such lofty expectations of oneself but have no direction whatsoever towards achieving anything.

    Here’s an idea – invent your own career. Those incredibly useful career advisors at school alway bang on about 2/3’s of tommorows jobs not have been invented yet. They never suggest you should go and make up your own damn job as you go along.

    That’s what I’ll do – bugger around until I’m so good at doing the things I like that someone defines it as a “career”. Or I’ll just live in a cardboard box.
